Matched to your lifestyle Interdisciplinary Connection "I don't think we do enough to help stop animal cruelty. But with further education on the topic, I think we can do better. Harsher laws and penlties will provide a better deterrent for cruelty" - Dawn Morikami "I think Hawaii has to come a very long way before it actually starts to handle its animal cruelty. I think they can educate further. I don't think that they're putting in a 100% on helping people care for animals and educate them on how to do it. I don't think there is enough legislation evolved in breeding or how to keep an animal" - Sarah Smith Dogfighting ranking in 2013 Cockfighting ranking for 2013 Pair of unaltered dogs + offspring= 67,000 puppies in 6 years

Animals give humans all that they can give so it is expected that we repay our best friends with all we can do. Starting with the ending of the needless animal cruelty.

Health/care of animals "People aren't held accountable for what they do and they don't seem to think that treating animals count as being part of how to treat people" -Sarah Smith "Animals feel pain and sorrow just as humans do. Just because they can't communicate in the same manner as humans, it does not mean they don't show or feel pain." -Dawn Morikami Linked to violence in humans
